Playmation was announced a couple of months ago and seems like a great concept. Playmation uses toys and wearables, along with smart technologies like wireless communication, accelerometers, motion sensors and mobile apps to create a really unique play experience. In some ways, it’s kind of like Disney Infinity, where you purchase toys to add characters and items to your gameplay. However, that’s really where the comparison ends as Playmation is more of old-school style of gameplay where you actually physically move to battle your imaginary foes.
The interesting new system should inspire kids to run around and use their imaginations. The Playmation Gamma Gear Starter Pack, which is now available for pre-order on Playmation.com, includes Hulk Hands (see all of the items in the photo above), a Power Activator and an exclusive Loki Smart Figure. Based on the Hulk’s strength, users can put on Gamma Gear to help them defeat enemies, smash the ground to create an explosive shockwave, or even earn new powers by running through obstacles like tanks and helicopters.
